* SuperweaponSurprise: A group of bandits came across a town named Refuge, which is apparently populated by nothing but {{Actual Pacifist}}s - even the Sheriff would not raise his weapon in the face of imminent threat. This made the town easy prey for the bandits, but it was slowly revealed that the citizens were [[spoiler:outlaws who were granted a chance to redeem themselves: live for 10 years in peace, or go to hell. When push finally comes to shove, the bandits found out they were facing legendary figures such as Billy the Kid, Jesse James, Wild Bill Hickok, and Doc Holliday]].

* TownWithADarkSecret: Although the secret is disturbing, it's not ''dark'' per se.
* VillainBall: Blackjack and his band of outlaws. They ride into a weird little town whose pacifistic, religious inhabitants give them food and drink including alcohol, stable their horses, put them up in the hotel, and doctor their wounds all without payment. Said inhabitants really don't want trouble, to the point of not doing anything when the outlaws steal ammunition. The outlaws could just take the hospitality and go, stealing stuff on the way out. Was it ''really'' necessary to keep trying to kill people, wreck stuff, and rape the women, to the point where the townsfolk, who are actually dead famous outlaws, finally decide it's enough?

* SeeYouInHell: Used a few times. An outlaw says "We've got a long ride ahead of us. Those who can keep up with me, I'll see you in Chihuahua. The rest of you, I'll see you in hell." As it turns out, though, it is the ones who keep up with him who end up going with him into Hell.

* MeaningfulRename: The townsfolk of Refuge were all outlaws, murderers or prostitutes, but while there they shed their old, famous names for nature-themed ones. Glen, Lamb, Rose, Ivy, etc. It's part of an attempt to put all that behind them, apparently. During the final few scenes they use their famous names again, since they think they're about to go to Hell anyway.
